Pardubice is no longer just a hockey town. Namely, that the enteria arena is just a hall for this winter sport. Basketball found refuge. To be more precise, national team basketball. It all started with a fantastic run in qualifying for the 2019 World Cup. The Lions have lost just one of six home games, and that’s at a time when they already have a plane ticket to China in their pocket.

Pardubice has also been the venue for European qualification matches, followed by match windows for the next world championship. The last time was at the beginning of July in Bosnia.
The moon meets the moon, and the eneria arena revives in the sport of long-distance runners. This time, the Czech basketball players will stay longer in the East. Three whole days. They will start with the preparatory tournament before EuroBasket called CZ BASKETBAL Cup.
In addition to them, the Bulgarians and Croatians will also test their form. He games the system against everyone. Coach Ginzburg’s wards will play against an old friend today. After all, they ran into Bulgaria in the last two qualifiers. The last time was in February and it took a lot to beat the weaker country. It should be remembered that Czech composition resembles sheet music for a drum. Not in quantity, but in quality.
Considering that the European summit is getting closer and closer, it can be expected that the lineups of all the participants will be bursting at the seams…
“We will play with a composition that will crystallize the twelve players representing the Czech Republic at the home championship,” explained national team manager Michal Šob.
